European Countries Data and Rankings

Europe is a continent made up of a large number of countries, with their different competencies, policies, customs and situations. The socio-economic contrasts are obvious at first glance, but diving into their numeric data from different angles allows one to really know the reality that is lived within it.

For the first time, the world's best quantitative measures and indexes covering 50 European countries are placed next to each other, allowing the user to compare them from different perspectives, and with different methodologies.

The countries are ordered according to their result in the Best European Countries for Business ranking (better results at the top).

The research department of EuCham has conducted a detailed study of European data across a wide range of variables in order to provide a complete understanding of countries´ strengths, weaknesses and disparities. The comprehensive indicators are a combination of merely economic-, as well as sociopolitical and sustainability indicators.

EuCham believes that scientific data and research should be freely accessible to all and easy to find in one place. Everyone should have the right to seek and to access knowledge. With Lens on Europe entrepreneurs, policymakers, businessmen, researchers, etc. have the possibility to take essential information into consideration.

In order to provide measurable and precise assessments of the overall European region, the research exclusively collects data from reliable sources and organizations. Unlike many other indexes and studies conducted by various organizations, the EuCham work distinguishes itself through the complete analysis of 50 countries with at least some territory within the geographical boundaries of Europe (this includes Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan) plus Cyprus and Armenia (two countries which, in spite of geographically lying in Asia, are socio-culturally, economically and politically associated to Europe). Contrary to the common practice often limiting themselves to the exclusive study of Europe through the EU27 model, this collection offers a more complete overview of Europe with respect to its comprehensive socio-geographical borders.
